I thought this might be of interest in comparing different species of ants next to a species most of us know very well.

Depending on species and number of workers/larva I tend to feed my ants every other day some fresh protein. However you will get a feel for how much your individual colony requires.

Hello Astro,

A great read that was. As you already know, what a cracking ant species you have there and the difference in sizes puts them in my top 10 list of ants. I would really like to see a photo of your setup. Keep posting, Jon.

Camponotus nicobarensis has been mention and i think is a great looking species, you just have to look at the journal I made. C. habereri, is the much improved colouration on the C. nicobarensis and we have quite a few of those. C. singularis has been mentioned, what a lovely looking ant, to see a m...

We do not have any Carebara diversa at the moment, in all honesty they are not what i would refer to as a large species of ant, yes eventually they make create some rather large workers, but boy do they create an awful lot of tiny workers.
